Part of our six-pack detox plan, this meaty crab salad is a great alternative to chicken. It's still full of protein, but it also has the added benefit of omega-3, which not only helps aid memory and cognitive functions, it's also great for keeping your heart healthy.
As crab contains the 'long-chain' variety of omega-3, just 100g actually provides a third of the UK recommended weekly intake of omega-3. It's low in fat and, like most shellfish, full of selenium which is used for supporting the immune system, and thyroid hormone metabolism.
Crab also contains a lot of copper, which is involved in the production of red blood cells and keeps bones, blood vessels, nerves and the immune system healthy. It also contains vitamin B2, which is involved in making steroids and is essential for normal growth.
The olives add more copper, iron and antioxidants, and the watercress contains 15 essential vitamins and minerals, more iron than spinach, more calcium than milk, and more vitamin C than oranges.
Crab, watercress and cucumber are all excellent for skin health, whilst the latter also flushes out toxins and keeps you hydrated.
The addition of the Brazil nuts brings a crunch to the salad, and they're also high in selenium.
Meaty, tangy and tasty, this crab salad is a truly restorative meal.
